This was an amazing salad. I've been scrambling to find the perfect main course for a bridal shower and I have to search no more. The perfect blend of pasta chicken and fruit makes it a well rounded dish for a luncheon. I just finished eating my second helping of the test batch and I know it will be a hit! Read More

Very tasty; however a lot of work involved with all the different fruits. My mother liked the taste and would like for me to make this salad one day for one of her church teas. I WILL!!:o) Read More

What a great chicken salad. I made a few changes due to my own preferences. I skipped the oranges and the pasta instead of adding the Tbls of sugar I added 2 Tbls of the pineapple juice. I used 1/2 cup of mayo and 1/2 cup of miracle whip added a few green onions cut down the celery to 2 stalks and grilled four chicken breasts. I served the chicken salad in warm soft pitas. I know I changed mine alot but this recipe gave me the foundation for what I was looking for. Read More

This is delicious! I love the hint of nutmeg. I used fresh broccoli instead of the celery and it came out great. Read More

I boiled a whole chicken and left out the oranges. I used twice the amount of purple grapes instead. I added a little Miracle Whip to make it creamier and my husband and I loved it. No doubt this is one of our favorite summer salads. Read More

I am a big chicken salad fan I absolutely love this! I have made it several times but I leave out the mandarin oranges and the milk - they seem to make it too soupy. I do not add nutmeg either. I have made this a dozen times I have gotten many requests for the recipe. Read More

Very very good but any salad like this that I make must have NUTS...nuts nuts nuts. I love nuts. Especially almonds...sliced ones work well with this recipe. This is a terrific recipe! Read More

This is an excellent main corse salad on a hot summer day. I wanted to make sure my husband would like it so I left out the pineapple and only a small pinch of nutmeg. It was the right consistency without the milk. Easy to make but lots of chopping. My Pampered Chef chopper made it much quicker. This is a definate keeper. Read More

I loved it -- others in the family did not. I agree with the lady that mentioned making it for a ladies luncheon. My hubby and kids didn't like the mix of fruit and chicken in a salad. Personally I thought it was great! Read More
